Update: We thought we might have to attend till December ended, however we now know all the main points concerning the upcoming collaboration between Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong and wonder entrepreneur Kat Von D. Unlike the latter’s common Tattoo Liner, the Basket Case Anti-Precision Liner is a kohl method in an outsized, retractable pen for making the smudgy emo look simple. Oh, and it comes with a built-in sharpener — simply in case you continue to whittle your pencils right down to a smoky stub.

Update (October 31, 2017): Kat Von D Beauty has lastly introduced the official launch date of the Billie Joe Armstrong liner collaboration, and it is really not as distant as we anticipated. According to a current Instagram publish, you possibly can anticipate the black eye pencil in early January 2018. Our response to that: Wake us up when December ends.
This story was initially revealed on October 18.
The final time we heard the title Green Day, it was most likely the summer season of 2000 and we have been at Warped Tour in the course of a mosh pot. Since then, the punk rock band that fueled our teenage angst years has sadly stayed out of popular culture — nicely, till at the moment. Now, Green Day’s glory is getting one other renaissance thanks to at least one magnificence model and really badass cosmetics mogul: Kat Von D.
While the band’s second greatest hits compilation album will launch later in November, that is not what we’re speaking about. Instead, the lead singer of the musical ensemble Billie Joe Armstrong not too long ago collaborated Von D on a brand-new liquid eyeliner. Yep.
Surprisingly, this celeb magnificence partnership makes a number of sense. Not solely was Armstrong was one of many well-known frontmen to make black eyeliner iconic, he additionally did it on the peak of the punk-emo phenomenon. (This was popularly known as “guyliner.” Luckily that phrase has since gone extinct.) Now, it appears like this launch will pair Armstrong’s recognizable look with Von D’s expertise for making the greatest liquid liner formulation, ever.
The model teased the product’s arrival on the Kat Von D Beauty’s Instagram Story late yesterday, solely revealing the eyeliner’s title — Basketcase — and the packaging. Similar to Von D’s Tattoo Liner, this new method calls again to the muse itself — each the title and the packaging reference the band’s 1994 album Dookie. No phrase but on when this product will launch, however extra particulars are anticipated to leak once more tomorrow.
We’ve reached out to the model and can replace this publish once we know extra — hopefully, that’ll assist clear up precisely what “precision-smudge” means.
